2:12 am
risible market reaction based on the outcome and then everything completely turned. in order to approach this we need to understand what is driving it. the market has been entirely focused on the positives that donald trump is bringing with him. the fiscal boost. the deregulation. >> is any of it actually based on policy? it is all speculative. maybe of, probably, then maybe, we could. >> that brings me to the big risk the market is facing in the sense of the market right now is politicalen by perception is post a fundamentals and as you said, probability based on political development so i think the risk we are going to get at this point is for the market a disappointment. anna: for anybody with a [indiscernible]
2:13 am
-- as yousef rightly pointed out. but anyway on the subject of the fed hike. >> right. i think the market has currently priced in almost 100% probability. a rate hike in december, i think will happen. i think the fed will do more harm if they do not hike. the end as opposed to hiking because of they do not, that will probably signal to the market they know something over and above what the rest of us now and that is not good. so i do not think they are going to go down this road. at the end of the day, the data are not going to show any deterioration. i think what is interesting, i and what ismonitor happening to nominal rates, i am also monitoring what is happening to break even and real rates. with 2015 whent we had a sharp tightening of
2:14 am
real rates back then. right now, really rates have been fairly stable which tells you a lot of what is happening with the inflationary story i think leads to something that will be very important. i does the two-year treasury yield. to much further is is going go into 2017? >> we had the conversation earlier and the point was made it was not getting a lot out of fear. it goes back to, is fiscal stimulus going to happen or not? are semi-things you mentioned, so many moving parts. first of all, the speed of the move we have seen and u.s. 10-year nominal rates is not [indiscernible] -- what
2:15 am
levels we're going to see in 2017, it is hard to say right now largely because a lot depends upon the political decisions that will be taken. will we get a physical boost? we are likely to. will it be the right fiscal boost? anna: what impact will this have on emerging markets? you do not think this is quite like tantrums we have seen any past. i have a chart that shows again oil. you can look for inspiration anywhere. ofs is dropping as a result donald trump. >> actually, the performance of industrial and mental prices relative to the rest of -- metal prices relative to the rest, you see the gap would be much weaker than the one you are showing right there. i think the elements for a very fundamental weakness in emerging markets is not there based on
2:16 am
what is happening in the market right now because as i said what matters historically is real rates. and real rates have not moved by rates.as much as nominal having said all that, again, i would go back to the previous closing taking the driver's seat. if donald trump is down the road to production of them, is down the road of sharp restrictions in emigration that are going to have impact on the u.s. gdp and therefore on a global scale, then this is not going to go very well. remarks, stillis focused on the positive trumponomics. thank you so much. >> all right. compass group ceo richard cozens is standing by to talk to us about his company's latest results. stay tuned for that exclusive interview.
